1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Havoc-Demon Hunter-specific information to deal with each boss in the Vault of the Incarnates raid.

This page assumes that you already understand most of the mechanics of each encounter. These can be found on the full raid guide, so what is contained here are details specifically tailored toward Havoc Demon Hunters and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

2.

Talent Cheatsheet

Currently, two different build types will be largely used in the Vault of the Incarnates raid; one based around great single target with solid cleave DPS, and the other based around AoE for some specific encounters. Generally, the single target option will be the default choice in raid encounters.

3.

Eranog

Talent recommendations for this boss are the default at the top of the page.

Adds are essential to burn down here, but this is predominantly a single-target encounter.

  • When fixated by a Flamescale Tarasek, use Blur Icon Blur to reduce damage taken.
  • Try to save a heavy-hitting cooldown such as Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam and Essence Break Icon Essence Break for Primal Flame to kill an add and break a hole in the ring to cross through.
  • Utilize Fel Rush Icon Fel Rush to place your Flamerift Icon Flamerift near the other drops of your group when it is going to expire.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

4.

Terros

Talent recommendations for this boss are the default at the top of the page, however, if you struggle with the movement caused by Momentum Icon Momentum and similar talents, you can play an alternative build on this fight. The talent hash for this secondary talent build is: BEkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSCSiUiQLJRSiABAAAAAAAJBplSkkUEikGKSQSSSA

This is a pure single-target fight.

  • Be aware of your positioning when pressing Fel Rush Icon Fel Rush since you can fel rush into and down the hold Terros is standing in.
  • Utilize Blur Icon Blur for Rock Blast Icon Rock Blast to reduce the damage taken from the group soak.
  • Darkness Icon Darkness is a powerful raid cooldown for the mythic mechanic Infused Fallout Icon Infused Fallout.

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

5.

The Primal Council

Due to The Primal Council being a constant 4-target cleave fight, the recommended build changes heavily to be similar to a Mythic+ setup. The talent hash for the recommended build is this: BEkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgkIJJSJItkEJJCEAAAAAAAkEkWKRSUCSSaJBSgkA

For more information, please refer to our The Primal Council guide.

6.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

Talent recommendations for this boss are the default at the top of the page.

Some adds are essential to burn down here, but this is predominantly a single-target encounter with a swap to a necessary single add and little adds to be passively cleaved. If you struggle with the movement caused by Momentum Icon Momentum and similar talents, you can play an alternative build on this fight for a moderate DPS loss. The talent hash for this secondary talent build is: BEkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSCSiUiQLJRSiABAAAAAAAJBplSkkUEikGKSQSSSA

For more information, please refer to our Sennarth, the Cold Breath guide.

7.

Dathea, Ascended

Talent recommendations for this boss are the default at the top of the page.

This fight is primarily a single target fight with intermittent platforms of add sets. Our single target build does good cleave to be optimal for this fight.

For more information, please refer to our Dathea, Ascended guide.

8.

Kurog Grimtotem

Talent recommendations for this boss are the default at the top of the page.

Kurog Grimtotem is primarily a single target encounter with some adds to cleave, intermission phases include a couple of essential adds to burst down but do not change our build.

  • Try to have cooldowns up for intermissions to help burst the adds, such as Blazing Fiend.

For more information, please refer to our Kurog Grimtotem guide.

9.

Broodkeeper Diurna

Due to Broodkeeper Diurna being either heavy cleave damage or single target later in the fight, your build will come down to what your guild or group will need you to provide. If you feel your group needs AoE instead of the single target DPS with cleave that Havoc can provide on its default build, then the recommended build changes heavily to be similar to a Mythic+ setup. The talent hash for the AoE build is this: BEkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgkIJJSJItkEJJCEAAAAAAAkEkWKRSUCSSaJBSgkA

  • Keep watch of your burst to not catch aggro on the mobs as they spawn. With repeated spawns, it is likely you can rip aggro occasionally, be sure to Blur Icon Blur if you do to live.
  • If you are assigned to add duty, be sure to use cooldowns on the Proto-Drakes as they are the most dangerous adds in the fight.
  • You can utilize Vengeful Retreat Icon Vengeful Retreat to remove the Icy Shroud Icon Icy Shroud healing absorb and slow debuff.

For more information, please refer to our Broodkeeper Diurna guide.

10.

Raszageth the Storm-Eater

Talent recommendations for this boss are the default at the top of the page.
